The Chief Minister’s Office has asked the Urban Development (UD) department to look into the approach road for Mohammadwadi residents.
The CM office had communicated its decision to Ganga Kingston Co-operative Housing Society, secretary Daljeet Goraya stating “We have received your application related to the construction of tar road for Ganga Kingston, Raheja Vista and Gemini Park residential societies in Mohammadwadi. The complaint has been given to UD for further action,” it stated.
The Ganga Kingston Society drew the attention of CM Devendra Fadnavis stating that the sub-standard conditions of the road were causing serious problems for the area residents.
“The present status of the road conditions is totally unacceptable with the road full of potholes and stones. There are actually no roads and citizens are suffering because of PMC apathy in building the road despite taking taxes regularly from us. A flash flood or an untimely rain is reason enough to expose the disheartening situation,” the complaint stated.
It further added that the worst to suffer are the local commuters. Since the concerned roads remain busy practically the whole day, buses and cars running on them invariable get stuck in traffic jam.
Students get late for school, parents are late for office and in some extreme cases, even ambulances are delayed.
Proper road infrastructure of a locality is a right for the residents of the locality. In no way should the residents of a locality suffer due to the lack of good quality road conditions or no roads at all.
If any damage is caused to the local infrastructure, it is up to the PMC authority to look into the matter and address the problem.
The most shocking part is the PMC officers in charge of Mohammadwadi area who are deliberately scuttling down the society’s Right to Information (RTI) request.
One of the PMC officers called up Goraya and asked him to withdraw the RTI which he had given on the road.
Goraya has demanded detailed probe including registration of criminal cases against all those officials and the vested interests who are against the road construction.
Goraya has also petitioned the Pune Police regarding the issue. The society has written to the Prime Minister office (PMO), chief minister office (CMO), PMC commissioner, chief secretary, the home secretary, city engineer, PMC road department head asking them to quickly construct the road citing threat to their lives.
